Considering "god" isn't even his name, but what he is, I see no need to capitalize it.

Also I haven't even bothered reading the link.

I stopped capitalizing it out of disrespect more than anything. Not to those who are religious, but to the depiction of a raging asshole god.

because when we use the word ‘God’ it stands for a person.

No. Not even according to conservative theology, God is not a person, not a mortal, not at all. And I "capitalized" the "g" there for the sake of nothing, which is what God is.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

Did anyone else tune out after "Catholic annoyed"?

Cuz that takes so much fucking effort to achieve...

Yeesh! Annoyed over nothing!

I may capitalize the "G" in "God" but to me, "God" is just a general term for "The Supreme Being" rather than "The Big Abrahamic Guy In The Sky". I use both capitalized & non-capitalized. In the big scheme of things it's small potatoes. Often I'll spell it "Godde" to make it more androgynous. Of course, I simply just write "Deity" and leave it at that.

This guy who wrote the article would have a conniption over soggy cornflakes and that small hole that appeared in his sock.

I capitalize God when talking about the specific Judeo-Christian deity, lowercase when speaking about the concept ("Zeus was a Greek god"). This is less out of respect than the fact it just happens to be a proper noun, and my brain is annoying about that.

I refuse to capitalise "him" when referring to God, though, because fucker doesn't deserve special grammar. I also find the insistence that God be referred to by male pronouns hilarious.

god, what a whiny, pretentious douchenozzle.

I see what you did there.

And I approve.

They say that YHWH created Man in his own image.  Then created woman from man.  In short, that's probably their justification for the insistence on God being the protomale, and thus why they believe men are superior to women, for those sexist fucknuggets.

That being said, the fact that they insist on him being male, and absolute insist that using the feminine gender is heretical... makes me believe that YHWH, as they see him, was created in their image...

A fact which I'm sure a lot of people here quite wholeheartedly already believe.

Is this issue of concern to god/God?  As much, say, as the sexual activities of homo sapiens ?
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.

Pretty sure god, if there is a god, doesn't give a flying horse fuck about what annoys his toys.
